I can confirm that Mariner / Mercury are advising people to connect the hose to the special inlet (not quite the same place as the tell-tale) and run the engine.

This inlet is above the inpella and (alegiadly) enough water will back-feed through the system to lubricate said impella.

I think thats a load of bo***ks, and if it was my engine would ignore it all and use muffs or a barrel. My local Merc dealer agrees, far too much potential for damage.

I.
Sorry Daniel do you mean above the prop , front or back - the pic he has posted seems to show the hose going into the tell tail port, although its difficult to see.

I must check mine tomorrow

Next to the telltale is an inlet. It has a small threaded blanking peice of plastic in it and a square head to remove it with a spanner or similar.

Hi Daniel,

just looked at my one outside.

All that I can see is the TT spout sticking out through a circular threaded female connection about 1 1/4 diameter and nothing else near it apart from the breather.

The plot thickens
